The Video Atlas of Human Anatomy - Vol. 4
The fourth tape in this remarkable and beautifully produced video anatomy atlas is the first of two tapes that explore the fundamental structures of the Head and Neck. Tape 4 consists of five sections, describing:
- Support and Movement of the Head
- The Skull and Facial Skeleton
- The Nasal Cavity and Its Surroundings
- The Oral Cavity and Its Surroundings
- The Larynx and Its Surroundings
The Tapes show you true images of real, exquisitely dissected human anatomical specimens, in three dimensions. As the camera moves from one viewpoint to another, the specimen appears to rotate in space, letting the viewer experience it as a three dimensional object. Acland's Video Atlas uses fresh, unembalmed specimens that retain the color, texture, mobility—and beauty—of the living human body.
A concise synchronized narration runs throughout the video. As each new structure is shown, its name appears on the screen. There is a self-testing feature at the end of each section. A visible time signal shows where you are in the program. The reference booklet gives you both an alphabetic and a chronologic index, with time locations for each structure.
For students, Acland's Video Atlas is a time-saving aid to first-time learning, an effective way to relearn anatomy for clinical rotations, and a time-efficient tool for review at test time. For clinicians in training and in practice it assures a swift renewal of anatomic knowledge. For teachers Acland's Video Atlas shortens the time needed to provide immediate, satisfying explanations of three-dimensional structure.
